Last year I participated in the first Save Our Schools March in D.C.

It was a wonderful event.

This year, there will be another Save Our Schools March in D.C.

Some of the same speakers will return: my wonderful colleague Deborah Meier and the great teacher-educator Nancy Carlsson-Paige will speak, along with many others. I won’t be there because I am working hard on a new book and minimizing travel (and writing this blog, which is very time-consuming but keeps my spark plugs running).

The event is August 3-5. There is a group rate at the Marriott-Wardman Hotel.

If you live near D.C., or if you can get there, I urge you to attend. Join with others who care about the future of our schools and our children.
